Academic Plans

Books at Library

View sample Academic Plans that incorporate University, General Education, and Major requirements. 

These are meant to serve as sample plans that students can use as a guide on how an Eighth College student with your specific major can graduate in 4 years and takes into account course sequencing and potential overlaps. The actual class choices you make throughout your academic career can and will likely change how your individual plan looks. Plans will also vary based on quarterly schedule of class offerings and availability.
